According to reputable leaker Evan Blass, Google's next operating system will release during the week of August 21, "most likely on the 21st itself." Blass didn't specify which devices will get the update, but judging by Google's history, it seems like a safe bet to assume that the company's own Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones will get Android O before any third-party devices.

The more notable Android O features include improved battery life, which Google plans to achieve by limiting what your apps do in the background. You can also expect more organized notifications, picture-in-picture video, smarter copy-and-pasting capabilities and better overall performance.
Android O will almost certainly come loaded onto Google's upcoming Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 smartphones, which are expected to launch this fall with OLED displays, waterproof designs and faster processors. We look forward to getting our hands on both Android O and the new Pixel later this year.
